Female Changeling Intrigue Oracle 3 (covetous curse)

I think Oneidros posted his rolls, but not his actual roleplay.

If we need to, we can just skip that part of the ritual, taking one success off.

I still have a little bit of roleplay to do, what with actually pouring the energy in, but if you want to describe it, Rednal, feel free.

@Sashin, I think Oneidros sounded very excited about the RP-opportunity. I would assume that while he only has rolls now, he wants to do the actual RP of his results, too.

So it's just a question of wether we wait until he had time to post, or just assume he will do so when he has time-

Either way, I would say it's up to Rednal if he wants to give us that "success" for Oneidros RP in good faith that he will deliver, or take it off because right now it's not here.


@Yin: You could cast 'Embrace Destiny' up to two times (if you didn't like your first roll). Each casting counts as one of your attempts to change/improve a result. How would you prefer to use that (or any other appropriate powers as an alternative)?

@Rednal, would not change anything here.

Since the dice use the same random feed, If I "cast" it twice for Bluff, I just end up with that not being a critical failure(with one result coming up from below).

Same thing if I "cast" it twice for the second check instead, just one result wanders down from Bluff.

Since we have to "roll" in order, and there is a fixed order of rolls from the RNG on the board, casting it twice to change one result won't really have an impact here compared to casting it twice to change two different results.

So unless I misunderstood what you meant, I can just roll with it.
Technically, in a home game, I could argue that it's just luck-based stuff that takes a moment to cast(as opposed to research in a library), but I know the limitation to use powers on only 2 rolls was for fluff reasons and I'm totally fine with it.

I just did not know if it would count as "use" if I end up not "using" it.
Because technically, that "stored" roll is not bound to a check. I could "use" the stored roll to remember if that mushroom I saw earlier is poisonous or be diplomatic to Mineire and get him to scratch my back, between the wings, where it's hard to reach, then just proceed with making my check all regular, rolling, with no influence on it whatsoever...or re-cast Embrace Destiny and try again...and again...and again, simply wasting undesirable rolls on other things or waiting for them to time out.
But we both know that that roll was MADE to be used with the skill check in case it's a good enough roll. I just know it's tricky to use even in Face-to-Face, because technically, with heighten spell, I could theoretically "take 20" on both skills I can use embrace destiny for, wasting all bad rolls and only keeping ones good enough.

I know that is WAY not the intent of "only use powers on 2", so I thought about limiting myself in their use and instead trying to use another power to save a good roll that is simply not sufficient.
I thought power-wise that would be quite on-par with some of the other things, like redistribution of skill points. *shrug* but as said, totally fine. Just thought I'd try/ask, because why not ^_^


Some characters are better with bonuses and changing fate than others. XD One thing we can't - and indeed, shouldn't - try to do is make everything exactly the same for every character in every situation. If we did, you'd all be playing the same character. o_O And the thought of having five Yin's is terrifying. I think we'd be lucky to have the WORLD not be on fire by the time we were done.

"You got it all wrong. There are at least 5 Yins. We only share 1.5 bodies, but there's probably more of us. And we are not at all terrifying, we lost that aspect of being a nightmare creature if we remember correctly. It's just a matter of who is in charge! Which is obviously me. Or me."

Also, with Yin's mother sharing the name of Cthulhu's, I think it's not unusual a whole brood of Yin's would be fun for a planet!

On a side note, I'm tiny, so I can form a swarm. I just need more bodies, then I can be SWARMING a planet. Literally ^_^. I already got the Hivemind, it's really only bodies I'm lacking.


Female Changeling Intrigue Oracle 3 (covetous curse)

Hmm. That thing is sexy dangerous.

Question, when will we be losing our powers?
If we lose all class features like you said we would, I'm a 3rd level sorceror, and will need to select the spells I want to keep.

Also, LG? Eww. Good is gross!

And, looking at just it's stats, this thing is gonna crunch Horranath into Tiny dragon-sized pieces.


Horranath's stats are not what was in the book, and she's had an hour to prepare after seeing what you five were capable of. XD Also, yeah - the big ZK might be a biiiit irked about that alignment, but hey, it's what you rolled. XD ...By the way, if you'd gotten one point higher, you would have had a giant three-tailed scorpion.

(As for losing class features, I thought about it for a bit and amended things. You're limited to using them in the ways described for the fight, and can't cast anything on Adam until the fight begins. Basically, you're too exhausted from creating this thing to fight Horranath yourselves - the best you can do is support what you've made with what little energy you've got left. It can be any appropriate power.)

Weird, really.

We have Mineire, Lawful Neutral.
Barrett, True Neutral.
Oneidros, True Neutral,
Sashin, Lawful Evil,
and Yin, Chaotic Shiny.

How did it end up Lawful Good? I failed as a parent, did I not?

On another note, I vote Control Mode(as did Barrett and Sashin in Gameplay).

I hope the alignment does not cause me to spend my turn nauseaus.

Also, since we are all sitting on the Sideline like good little sidekicks, watching our main character battle the BBEG...could we all STARE at Horranath, really foreboding and angry? ^_^


Female Changeling Intrigue Oracle 3 (covetous curse)

Oh, dudeeee.

A three-tailed scorpion sounds awesome!
Did you count Oneidros' roleplay? xD

And, oh. Okay, cool. That gives me a few more options.
I think.

oh, one more question. With them having speeds of 100 feet+, there's no guarantee that we could use short-ranged longer-lasting buffs once the battle is joined. Could we pre-apply those with sufficient duration before heading back as one of our actions?(I know I can't buff him up to make Horranath jealous, just wondering if we could slightly prepare before heading back-)

also, just for the record: I still have an unselected Metamagic Feat.

If I take Maximize Metamagic, then cast "maximized" Embrace Destinies, we should have one more success since I rolled a natural 20, right? ^_^

Is the giant scorpion chaotic?


@Yin: Because the way I ran this was that every success you had increased the CR of the creature you created by one - with the three main Kaiju from Paizo (discounting Agmazar) taking precedence at those levels. XD As it happened... CR 25 was a giant lawful-good construct. One rank below would've gotten you a giant kudzu plant.

As for the rest, figure you're riding on its shoulders or something, so you don't need to worry about distance when casting your buffs.

Aaaaaand that's three votes for Control Mode, so it looks like that's what we're doing. ^^ The order will be...

*Dramatic drumroll*

...

*Randomizes the list*

1. Yin
2. Mineire
3. Sashin
4. Oneidros
5. Barrett


Female Changeling Intrigue Oracle 3 (covetous curse)

Oh, lord. Zon-Kuthon save us.

Yin...is first!

Since no prebuffing: Well, do feel free to describe our scene on return...I'll be watching one episode of a series with my SO, but will be back later to take the first action. ^_^

I guess it will boil down to either telekinetically-charging, or hasting...I will take some time to consider my options though once I know what awaits. On a completely unrelated note...if I telekinetically-charge something that is holding me, can I break relativistic speed by going infinitely fast? (I expect the answer is last digit of π(Pi) divided by Zero times NaN, but still...)

@Sashin..."Where is your God NOW?...No really, you channel shadow plane energy and we end up with a Lawful Good Construct? You think you should consider that your two-weeks notice? Maybe we should freelance? I always wanted to achieve deific status!"


Yidhra says the answer to that is "Five tons of flax".

And I probably should write up your return...

The dragon darted below Adam's legs a moment later, deftly moving around the massive construct's body.
Horranath is currently within Adam's space. While there, Horranath has Cover from Adam's attacks, and it is Flat-Footed against her.

Combat Reflexes
Benefit: You may make a number of additional attacks of opportunity per round equal to your Dexterity bonus. With this feat, you may also make attacks of opportunity while flat-footed.

Does that mean I get to make 2 AoO before my turn begins, one for Horranath moving through threatened space and one for Horranath entering my space? Both should provoke AFAIK-...
Because if so, I would try and use Stand Still to smack Horranath into staying in reach for Full attacks without cover or getting flat-footed, or then smack Horranath with the second AoO.


Female Changeling Intrigue Oracle 3 (covetous curse)

Actually....yeah. Wow. You're fantastic, Yin!

it gets worse, Sashin...even if Horranath is avoiding the AoO's some other way(our CMD is 94...i doubt Horranath is using Acrobatic Flying), Adam is listed as having Big Step which means with Kaiju having "space=<reach", and being way larger than colossal, I could take an 80-foot step away from horranath without provoking, then slam it into the ground. I think we are slightly OP.


What kind of buffs do you guys want? I can bring all the way up to 7th lvl divine spells.


Female Changeling Intrigue Oracle 3 (covetous curse)

@Yin- Rednal created it, so he knows what it can do. I am sure he knows its capabilities, and has upped Horranath's stats as well. This should be fantastic.

@Barrett- are you talking about before we leave the library, or what? Because seeing that negative energy breath (copycat!) makes me want Death Ward.

Well, considering our's size, and the spells spread, I would greatly welcome someone with an Antimagic Field sitting near Adam's Fist.

Each time Adam slams into Horranath, it's magical defenses will fail in the Antimagic Field, but unless it specifically attacks the fist, the rest of Adam will not be affected. ^_^ Selective Antimagic FTW.

But seriously, Barrett, go with whatever you have available that makes sense. As I understood it, we were laboring all the time, so I suppose we'll have to make do with what we can come up with. Personally I'm fine with everything you throw out.

@Sashin, Yes, kind of afraid of that, because then it seems we have awfully few HP considering Horranath now copies your breath weapon and we lost the Kaiju resistances vs negative energy and sonic-


If Horranath provokes attacks of opportunity, I'll tell you. ^^ In this case, though, the dragon isn't.

You're not the only ones with nice toys. >D


Hey yall, just catching up from the road. No time for RP post. I *did* like the idea...but it won't happen.

Rednal, I see you called me 4/6. I think I beat 5/6 of the DCs...but perhaps you dinged me a point for not RPing?

Yin: go go go go go!


As stated you got a bonus point if you did RP. I counted right.


stats:
HP: 192/200 | AC: 36 (31) / T: 26 / FF: 36 / DR/SR: see stats | Fort: +14*, Ref: +17*, Will: +21* | M. Touch: +22*, R. Touch: +15* | CMB: +16*, CMD: 38* | Init: +4*, Perception: +42**(take 10)
Witchwyrd 6 / Savant +0 / Cryptic 7 // Psion 5 / Force +1 / Metamorph 7 /// Mythic Genius 1

as just about the entirety of my powers are personal/self, would i be able to use those on Adam by virtue of our connection?


It's really meant to be the ones meant for others... XD; But I don't want anyone to feel totally left out at the end, either. PM me which ones you want to use.

@mineire/rednal

I agree. Most buffs, also in Divine and Arcane, are personal/self.
Others are limited by the sheer size of this thing. Aside from 08/15 buffs, there's little that can effectively be used to buff him. But we'll find something ^_^

Still looking through considering options, and waiting for you guys to catch up and make your own decisions.

so, anybody else want to buff up adam?

It's just a question of action economy that I wait. We have no idea yet about what Horranath did to prepare for this, so I'll just go do the most basic and efficient thing that comes to mind, to see where it fails and provide intel for the next "controller".


Female Changeling Intrigue Oracle 3 (covetous curse)

Yeah, sorry. Been busy.
Writing up a post now.

Ideas?

Wrote first action up now. I know you guys are waiting for your chance ^_^

So lets see where things fall apart.

The problem I saw with Adam is that he's pretty much a one-trick Pony. But he's exceedingly good at his trick. With his attack riders, he should be utterly lethal in 1v1 combat unless his enemy is immune to all of them...or unable to be hit(but that would basically invalidate his "one-trick" thing.)...Otherwise you could end up stunned for 5 rounds, unconscious, prone, and exhausted...after a single full attack.

I'm really curious about seeing how Rednal planned this and will handle it.

Well, I'll try to find the time between work, family business, and finalizing my contribution for the legendary planet AP.
There will be no problems with only submitting 1 or 2 days before the end, I assume- I greatly enjoy the style, so I want to make something that will have a reasonable chance at being picked ^_^ that takes time.


As stated there, I am judging only by the quality of the final submission. How early or late that submission is posted - as long as it's before recruitment ends - will not be taken into account.


Female Changeling Intrigue Oracle 3 (covetous curse)

Unfortunately, Rednal, that kind of game just doesn't interest me.

It's not you; you've actually been a fantastic GM for us after the first one left us.

It's the style of game that Legendary Planet is.

Sorry!
And I wish you the best of luck!


Oh, that's 100% fine. People absolutely have very differing tastes in games. Some you want to play in, some you don't - I'm not even slightly offended if you don't want to play in that one. XD


Female Changeling Intrigue Oracle 3 (covetous curse)

Yeah, I didn't think you would have any problems with it.
But, I said I'd apply without even knowing what kind of game it was.

So, I figured I'd tell you face-to-face that I wouldn't be applying, instead of pretending I was. xD

When this is all over, I totally want to know Horranaths "mods".

First an AoO Bite against a 5-foot step(possibly via Feat Chain)

moving 50 feet to get into reach of us without provoking

Hasted Full Attack, with an Extra Bite afterwards,

Moving 300 Feet(some kind of Aquatic "Jet" for Air?) without provoking

And a negativ Energy blast against itself, probably with the same mouth she used to bite 4 times with in the past 6 seconds ^_^

I counted one AoO, 2 move actions, one fullround action, and 2 standard actions....I guess it's at least alacritous but that does not seem enough, plus immunity to crits and stunning must come from somewhere- I love these inverse puzzles.
I'm so taking some aspects and throwing them at my home group once I know mechanics. ^_^

Anyway: I have not seen any additional D6 rolled from smashing Horranath into the floor, did that seem to have any effect? I would guess from our vantage points we could see if slamming it while it's down seemed to be more effective than simply air-slamming-


Female Changeling Intrigue Oracle 3 (covetous curse)

Are you taking off the DR 20/ adamantine and epic, or can she bypass that too?

Also, we need a Death Ward on him, like, yesterday. That negative energy crap is getting old.

Kinda frustrated that Adam has a ton of critical feats, but apparently she's immune to crits?
Someone wanna give us some knowledge checks on this new-and-improved Horranath?

And it's immune to the stunned condition? Or did it just make a DC 63 Fort save?

Edit: did you take your two Aoo's, Yin? Adam has Stand Still, and with his CMB, you can stop anything from moving. That is, unless she's immune to combat maneuvers xD

@Sashin
She's immune to crits and stunned.(which invalidates his critical focus, tiring critical, exhausing critical and attack riders stun/unconscious)
And this point even makes sense because it would be a very anticlimactic battle

Also, she bypasses the DR and we can't debuff her.(which makes his DR pointless)

Adam also lost the Kaiju resistance to negative energy, which is her breath weapon now.(which makes him take full damage)

He has 80 foot reach, but Horranath moves as she pleases without provoking(despite being huge+ which should provoke from Kaiju), and full attacks on a spring attack, and also gets an AoO against 5-foot steps.(invalidating his big step feat, stand still+combat reflexes, and the reach advantage)

Unless someone has an awesome idea, we are pretty much done.(because Horranath can just run in melee range without AoO, full attack, and run way outside melee range, then heal. All we can do is use the pea shooter or try and close the distance(as we are effectively melee) and get a single attack in. Then she will full attack and run away+heal).

We can't even try and run away to heal up because she's tons faster than us. In other words, she has more mobility, more actions, and more custom-tailored abilities.


Female Changeling Intrigue Oracle 3 (covetous curse)

Well, it was fun while it lasted.

Unless Rednal messed something up somewhere, we cant do anything.

And it's a freaking construct, so no Breath of Life.

I don't know, we have to be missing something.


Female Changeling Intrigue Oracle 3 (covetous curse)

Hey, Mineire, any chance we can flee and try again, maybe with something other than a construct?

Kinda irks me too because no heal, no mind-affecting(morale), plus the size means several others won't work(can't DDoor with it to get it a full-attack). Heck, next round I'll reposition myself into his fist, and cast Anti-Magic Field. See if that helps any against the magical defenses and possibly shut down some of her immunities.

But honestly? No idea how we could win this. Totally open for suggestions.

Even if we knew where the lair was, we could not force battle by going there since Adam would never fit inside. Basically, same problem as before. She can flee and heal if she's wounded, we can't. If we are wounded, we can't flee, and she will destroy us. Not exactly a fun prognosis.


Female Changeling Intrigue Oracle 3 (covetous curse)

Well, let's start with you giving it Death Ward.
It's on the Witch list, which makes it arcane.

You are an Archmage, use it!


*Looks at all the -20's in the damage*

Adam's DR is still in effect. Plus pretty good automatic healing, which should work out quite nicely for you if you can avoid full attacks.

You also managed to do quite a lot of damage in melee - and Horranath, being essentially selfish, doesn't want to remain in melee range where she can suffer that kind of beating, even if she can give out as good as she gets. There's a limit to how much she can do things like recover from being Stunned, too.

Cannot. It's Arcane, but it must be on one of my arcane spell lists(=Sorcerer/Wizard), which it is not.


By the way, I use some additional spell tomes. If you'd like, I can look through them and see if there are any spells that might be helpful for you.
